Thursday Special, the 90th NFL Season is here…
For this first week, the defensive rankings are from the end of the 2008 regular season
NOTE: Always consider the defensive statistics when setting your line up
Titans at Steelers, Over- Under 34.5
Titans, Steelers defense v. run 2nd, v. pass 1st
Chris Johnson and LenDale White combined for 117 yards and 2 rushing scores in 2008’s week 16 game against the Steelers, you can expect about half of that production in this game, the most you can hope for this week is 60 rushing yards for Johnson and a short White touchdown plunge with little yardage…Kerry Collins will have to throw more than he will want, he has little fantasy value this year, but wide receiver Justin Gage had 100 yards receiving and a score in last year’s game, he had a great preseason and with Nate Washington hurting, Gage has even more value here, consider him as a flex player this week.
